Astros vs Marlins April 13, 2012

April 13, 2012

Major League Baseball is in full swing. The Houston Astros will play the Miami Marlins at Marlins Park tonight April 13 at 7:10 pm. This weekend the Marlins will be without manager Ozzie Guillen who was suspended by management for five games due to comments he made off the field.

This will be the first series the Marlins play in their new park. The Marlins are trying to overcome what has been a rough start to the season. Not only has Guillen been suspended but also, the Marlins have lost five of their first seven games and are dead last in the National League East.

The Marlins not only have a new park but new players as they signed free agents Mark Buehrle, Heath Bell and Jose Reyes. The Marlins were 2-4 in a swing through Cincinnati and Philadelphia. They played one game in their new park to open the season and lost that to St. Louis 4-1.

Miami has won 14 of their last 16 home games against the Astros. Last season, the Marlins scored 22 runs to 8 for the Astros in a four game sweep of Houston. Ricky Nolasco will start for the Marlins and is 3-0 with a 1.73 ERA against Houston in three starts including two complete games.

The Astros, 3-3, will have Lucas Harrell on the mound. Harrell has not faced the Marlins, but his debut game this season was a 7-3 victory over the Rockies. The Astros have dropped two straight. Jed Lowrie will make his debut at short for the Astros. He was acquired in the offseason from Boston and opened this year on the disabled list.

The over is 7.5 in the game and Miami is at -200, while the line has the Astros as +187.5. The Marlins should have a good start to their home stand with Nolasco opening up against the Astros. Look for a low scoring game to end UNDER the total.
